Courtesy boat inspectors busy

Pictured, left to right, are Wyatt McKenney, Alex Reitchel, and Brody Worth, all of Palermo. They will be incoming ninth graders at Erskine Academy, in South China, this year. (contributed photo)

The Sheepscot Lake Association Courtesy Boat Inspectors have been having a busy season at Palermo’s new boat launch! They have inspected over 100 boats for invasive species during their weekend shifts, and also educated boaters on the importance of self-inspections, both before entering and when leaving the lake. This is important since the inspectors are not always there to check your boat for you. It all plays a part in keeping Sheepscot the healthy lake that it is.
